When the news was announced, a large cheer went up from well-wishers and journalists outside the hospital while a large crowd greeted the posting of the bulletin outside Buckingham Palace.
The Kensington Palace press release said Prince William was present for the birth of his son, who will be known as the Prince of Cambridge.
“The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, Prince Harry and members of both families have been informed and are delighted with the news,” it said.
And the Prince of Wales, in a separate statement, said he and the Duchess of Cornwall were “overjoyed at the arrival of my first grandchild.
“It is an incredibly special moment for William and Catherine and we are so thrilled for them on the birth of their baby boy,” he added.
“Grandparenthood is a unique moment in anyone’s life, as countless kind people have told me in recent months, so I am enormously proud and happy to be a grandfather for the first time and we are eagerly looking forward to seeing the baby in the near future.”
Prince William and Kate Middleton spent time bonding with their son before they told the family their news, according to new reports.
Royal doctor Michael Setchell described the new arrival as “wonderful baby, beautiful baby”.
PM David Cameron, speaking outside Downing Street, hailed the “wonderful news”.
“It is an important moment in the life of our nation but I suppose, above all, it’s a wonderful moment for a warm and loving couple who’ve got a brand new baby boy,” he added.
He said the Royal Family could “know that a proud nation is celebrating with a very proud and happy couple tonight”.

“Along with millions here and around the world, I share in their joy at this special time,” he added.
“May God bless this family with love, health and happiness in their shared life ahead.”
Kate Middleton’s baby boy was overdue, royal sources have confirmed.
What does this mean for the birth?
Fewer than one in 20 women gives birth on their “due date” – the expected date of delivery given at the start of pregnancy.
Around half of pregnant women go into labor up to two weeks later, or labor is medically induced during this period because of worries about the health of mother and baby.
Prof. Andrew Shennan, an internationally renowned specialist, says it is more accurate to talk about a “due month” of birth because each woman’s circumstances are different.
Andrew Shennan, who works as professor of obstetrics based at St Thomas’ Hospital, London, said his unit’s policy is not to intervene until a woman reaches 42 weeks of pregnancy – two weeks overdue – unless there is cause for concern.
It is thought that Kate Middleton was 41 weeks pregnant today and comfortably within the normal margin for giving birth.
Prof. Andrew Shennan said: “Most women want to give birth naturally when possible and if there is no reason to induce, we’d rather not because it involves using drugs.
“Only about four per cent of women deliver on their due date, it’s better to talk about a due month, because when they are giving birth naturally around half will deliver later.”
Kate Middleton’s baby boy was overdue
The placenta – the baby’s support system in the womb – is equipped to last for about 40 to 42 weeks which means if labor hasn’t started there is a risk of the baby running out of nutrients at a time when it has never been bigger and more needy.
Another reason for intervening earlier is when there are signs of pre-eclampsia, which raises blood pressure and can threaten the lives of mother and baby.
When a decision is taken to induce labor, a number of drugs may be used to soften up the cervix – the neck of the womb – and start contractions including prostaglandin pessaries and oxytocin through a drip.
Obstetricians take a stepwise approach and if something works, there’s no need to continue with another drug, said Prof. Andrew Shennan.
These are normally given in hospital because the baby’s vital signs should be monitored throughout, he added.
Like thousands of other first-time mothers, Kate Middleton was asked to keep track of her contractions, the early signs of labor, at home.
She would have had instructions to contact her medical team when they were strong and regular, coming at the rate of two or three every 10 minutes, or if she was worried at any time.
Contractions are the tightening of muscles in the womb to push the baby down.
Prof. Andrew Shennan said: “It’s OK to stay at home at this stage and there is some evidence that women do better as a result.
“When they increase to three or four every 10 minutes then normal labor has started and she will need to set off for the hospital, allowing for time of day and traffic conditions.
“A lot depends on the level of discomfort and the woman’s pain threshold.”
The early stages of labor – which led to Kate Middleton’s admission to hospital around 5.30 a.m. this morning – may last some time, but when contractions speed up and the labor becomes established the timeline is carefully monitored.
The neck of the womb dilates, or widens, by one centimetre an hour and needs to get to 10 centimetres.
Often the second half of labor is signaled by the waters breaking – when the sac of amniotic fluid which protected the baby during pregnancy begins to leak.
Prof. Andrew Shennan, a leading researcher for the baby charity Tommy’s, said the early stages of labor can “niggle” for days.
“But when labor is established it’s a much clearer picture and ideally there will be good progress over 12 hours.
“Any longer and we would be considering a Caesarean section to ensure the safety of mother and child,” he added.
Kate Middleton gives birth to a baby boy, Kensington Palace has announced.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have welcomed a healthy baby boy, and the nation celebrates the birth of a future king.
Kate Middleton gives birth to a baby boy
Prince William and Kate Middelton’s son weighed 8lb 6oz and was delivered at 4.24 p.m. today at the private Lindo Wing of St Mary’s Hospital in Paddington with his proud father, Prince William, looking on.
Kate Middleton and the baby are both doing well and will remain in hospital overnight, said a spokesman for the palace.
The long-awaited baby will be given the title His Royal Highness and be known as Prince of Cambridge, after the Queen moved earlier this year to change almost a century of royal tradition.
The Queen issued a formal proclamation in January to end a convention brought in by George V which meant that a royal title was restricted to the children of the sovereign and the children of the sovereign’s sons.
After she gained 60 lbs during her pregnancy with her first child, daughter Maxwell, Jessica Simpson has proudly revealed that she has only gained half that amount in her second pregnancy.

“I’ve only gained half of what I did in my first pregnancy!”
Jessica Simpson admits that she “let herself go” when she was pregnant with Maxwell, not paying enough attention to her diet and fitness regime.
“With my first pregnancy I really let go. I felt like I deserved to eat whatever I wanted,” she said in her interview.
Jessica Simpson also says that this time around she has also been more relaxed about her maternity wardrobe, easing off wearing her signature high heels.
“This time around I’ve been less about the fashion and more about the comfort,” she explains.
“With Maxwell I tried to wear heels the whole time but it hurt my knees. Now I’m wearing more flats.”
Football player Jermain Defoe has become a first time father after his ex-girlfriend Anne-Marie Moore gave birth to a baby boy earlier this week.
Anne-Marie Moore, who Jermain Defoe dated briefly last year after splitting from Alexandra Burke, welcomed son Joshua-James Defoe on Tuesday.
Jermain Defoe, 30, was reportedly present at the birth and has seen his son everyday since.
A source told The Sun: “Jermain is thrilled to be a dad. It matures a person and he is determined to live up to his responsibilities.”
Jermain Defoe and Anne-Marie Moore revealed they were expecting a boy several months ago after briefly rekindling their romance in 2012.
The England football star, who was dumped by Alexandra Burke in May after he allegedly cheated on the singer, got back together with Anne-Marie Moore soon after.
Although Jermain Defoe and Anne-Marie Moore are no longer an item, notorious ladies’ man Jermain will reportedly stick by her side and help support the baby.

Anne-Marie Moore, 32, revealed her pregnancy when she posted a picture of her baby scan on Facebook.
She said: “There is such a special sweetness in being able to participate in creation of life. It’s a Boy…Mummies lips and Daddies head!”
A pal of Anne-Marie Moore revealed that the couple were always close, but that they had a “stormy” relationship, calling it quits on their romance once they realized that life was leading them in separate paths.
Jermain Defoe lists a number of stars as previous conquests and girlfriends.
Imogen Thomas, Chantelle Houghton and Danielle Lloyd have all previously dated Jermain Defoe.
But the source adds that Jermain Defoe’s “wild side in his twenties” is now over.
A four-week-old baby boy from London, UK, was dragged from his cot by a fox before the animal tore his finger off.
The child was asleep in his cot when his mother, in the next room, heard a piercing scream then a heavy thud as the baby was flung to the floor.
Local residents said the family had moved from the home in Bromley, Kent, following the attack on Wednesday and the house appeared empty today.
Council chiefs said the incident was “very tragic but rare”.
When the baby’s mother heard the screams from her son’s room, she ran in to find his hand lodged “halfway down the animal’s throat”. She fought desperately to release him, repeatedly kicking the fox until it eventually let go.
Surgeons later reattached the baby’s finger in an “extremely difficult” but successful three-hour operation.
“The baby is recovering well,” said a source.

The child also suffered puncture wounds to the face in what is believed to be the worst attack of its kind in Britain.
The fox had crept into the house through an open back door, which was apparently awaiting repair by the council.
The horrific attack in suburban Bromley, South-East London, has revived the debate over culling urban foxes.
Neighbors said foxes have been a “menace” in the area and are now worried about the safety of their own children.
Some experts believe there are now more than 10,000 foxes living close to humans in London. At the end of winter, when numbers are lowest, there are 258,000 adult foxes in Britain, of which 33,000 are in urban areas.
